I am not able to explain how did we get into this problem, but somehow
we ended up in the situation when there was xml file for a zone in
/etc/zones, but there was not entry in /etc/zones/index file for it.
This has the following effect:

                

                        The entry for labv490-01z5 is not in the index
file:

                        But it can be processed with no problems:

                                [EMAIL PROTECTED] zonecfg -z labv490-01z5
verify
                                [EMAIL PROTECTED] echo $?
                                0

                        Problem happens when we try to remove the zone:

                                [EMAIL PROTECTED] zonecfg -z labv490-01z5
delete
                                Are you sure you want to delete zone
labv490-01z5 (y/[n])? y
                                Zone labv490-01z5 not in configured
state; delete not allowed.  Use -F to force delete.

                        Suggested option not recognized:

                                [EMAIL PROTECTED] zonecfg -F -z
labv490-01z5 delete
                                zonecfg: illegal option -- F
                                usage:  zonecfg help
                                        zonecfg -z <zone>
(interactive)
                                        zonecfg -z <zone> <command>
                                        zonecfg -z <zone> -f
<command-file>
                                [EMAIL PROTECTED]

First question is, how we ended up with the problem - is thee a way to
break the "zonecfg -z <name> delete" command, so it will remove only the
index, leaving the xml? And second, why the force option -F doesn't
work?
